Spanish rail company Renfe introduces ‘Renfe Spain Pass’
Renfe, Spain’s leading rail service provider, has introduced a new rail pass to enable visitors to Spain to travel around the country with just one ticket.
The ticket, which is valid six months from its purchase date, and one month from the first journey taken, will allow visitors to choose from four to 12 journeys to travel throughout Spain during a one month period at competitive prices.
An added bonus of the ticket system is that it is a fully electronic issuing process; no print-outs are necessary and bookings can be shown on a mobile phone or tablet. The pass also includes extra products provided by Ave Cities such as museum tickets and discounts. 16 destinations make up AVE Cities, and by opting to travel on the AVE rail network, customers are eligible for discounts on a range of cultural experiences.
Tickets are available for adults or children (aged four to 13 years old), and in two classes; Club and Tourist. Prices start from £140 for adults and £105 for children for four journeys, and include all seat reservation costs. Tickets can be purchased in Spain or outside of Spain via the internet, travel agencies or train stations.
This new initiative aims to provide a more flexible way of travelling around Spain, as customers only have to decide on the number of journeys they wish to take, with no pressure to decide when to take them.
In its first seven months, 5,527 Renfe Spain Passes have been sold, 97% of which were adult tickets.
